Bike porn anyone.

The weather here on the wet coast has been absolutely fabulous. I am so happy that June finally arrived....

It has a been a dream to ride and run in. This past week workouts have been good - swimming started so I was in the pool Mon, Wed and Fri and I am now the fastest of the slowest!!! One really must bask in accomplishments....

The running has been great - really long mileage yesterday was a "quick" 37km if there is such a thing. Felt pretty good but IT band is making noise today - a little concerning but I will roll it out tonight and that to should pass. Not quite sure why I keep running these distances as I have not actually registered for any of the marathons - everyone thinks I am certifiable (more so than when I registered for IMC2009) because I am doing these long runs willingly and usually by myself?!?!

Okay - I promised bike porn - after the tragic passing of my little car (moment of silence please)..... I finally got over to my bike coaches house to get my basic mearsurements before I go bike shopping - He suggests 50" female designed frame - carbon would be best, ultegra components, 700 wheels - do not get 650 - 700 - he was adamant. Have not had a chance to go anywhere yet - such is life but I do know that the dreambike would be the Specialized Ruby Comp- (see below)



I however also like this Trek model:



Now just to go find my new chariot that will take me triumphantly up RIchter's Pass.
